Day by day

1. Day by day, Lord,
Heal my mind,

2. And, bit by bit,
Please make me whole.

3. Step by step,
Rebuild my peace,

4. And, drop by drop,
Restore my soul.



1. The churning inside me never stops; days of suffering confront me (Job 30:27; NIV).

“I will give you back your health and heal your wounds,” says the Lord (Jeremiah 30:17; NLT).

Think of it – the Lord is ready to heal me! (Isaiah 38:20; NLT).

2. He wounds, but his hands make whole (Job 5:18; NKJV).

3. I will most surely heal the wounds of this city and restore it and its people to health. I will show them abundant peace and security (Jeremiah 33:6; NET).

The peace I give is a gift the world cannot give (John 14:27; NLT).

4. He restores my soul (Psalm 23:3; NKJV).

  • We are dependent on our God in all things; every day, hour and second. Every breath we take is by His Grace. In the light and in the dark He preserves our soul. How could I repay Him? Even if I had the riches of the whole earth I would not have enough to pay my debt to Him.

      • I am no poet Ruth, I do not possess that skill. I write what the Lord lays on my heart, often from words penned by yourself lately. The spiritual gift of poetry that you possess is a fountain of blessing for those who read your work. I count myself privileged and blessed to be one of your readers.

      • You are far too kind, Alan – I only do exactly the same as you. God gives me the insight and some words, then helps me to shape it and make it comprehensible. He is so kind XXXXXX
